Collection of Louisiana State Debt to be Strengthened by CGI Technologies and Solutions

November 12, 2012

In order to collect millions of dollars from borrowers in Louisiana, CGI (News - Alert) Technologies and Solutions has been chosen by the state’s Commissioner of Administration for the collecting, compiling, and disseminating the debt statistics in the state. Kristy Nichols, Louisiana Commissioner of Administration, has made this announcement.  

CGI Technologies will be responsible to conduct data collection, an analysis of debts owed to the state, and help implement a plan to improve state government debt collections. The main motive of the RFP is to carry on expert analysis of the state's inventory of accounts receivables and debt owed to it.

The Commissioner of Administration will utilize this data to implement a strategy and developing tools which can enhance the state's ability to capture money owed to the state.

Instead of having agency accountants operating by different rules, CGI Technologies will streamline collection efforts for recently delinquent debts and also standardize the policies and procedures by which they pursue recently outstanding accounts receivable. The company will also consolidate  state level efforts and utilize third-party support and evaluate debts to be either tasked to a group of fulltime collection agents in a consolidated state entity, outsourced to third-party debt collection experts or addressed via public-private debt collection partnership.

The company will also start early action for delinquent payments and standardized a timeline for outstanding accounts receivable. These deadlines will send a debt from agency accountants to state collection agents or third-party collection entities so that no debt falls through the cracks. The company will work to ensure maximum payment and establish and/or enhance penalties, fees, and fines, including offsets such as withholding tax refunds or unclaimed property.

Speaking about the data, Commissioner Nichols said in a statement, "This is an important step for taking a data-driven approach toward implementing a comprehensive plan that protects taxpayers and aggressively and persistently pursues money owed to the state."
